Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - June 21, 1906, Lethbridge, Alberta IMrIDGB herald '''ig?MPSON A BUCHANAN I Publishers t. RiiirsoN W. A. BUCHANAN - StTBSCRIPTION: i-BAdvaace - 1.60 a year ^Otberwlae - W-OO a year ADVERTISINQ: Per Month - 1.00 Per Inch QUIT lOARNG. It is disgraceful the manner in which young men conduct theiu-�elves on Round st., princiiully between Bedpath at. and Baroness road, on Saturday evenings. It is almost impossible for a lady to walk along the streets without being crowded or jostled b^ tden. Then she is in danger, too, of having her skirts rained by trailing in the tobacco juice that is expectorated over the walk by .the loafing element. Surely there is room enough on the public square for young men to spend their evenings, without standing around Round St. and causing an annoyance to the ladies. EMTORUL Hons. "Wherever the sun shines population without.Innd is ii niarveland land without population is a wilderness. You want them both. The quality of the soil is of leiss consequence than the quality of the man who lives on the soil. As far as yon hav� gone in Canailn your ediicational institutions and A jolly French girl was Miss .Barry, of Montreal. Her luugh, like her pen, cheers and brightens all who ineet her or read ller articles. She had been talking Englisii for a week and while licre wandered back to lier old tongue, when she got into conversation with an old Montrealer, E. A. the general standard of business | Cunningham, who speaks French integrity is siich that you have no apologies to make. Keep that cle in: hold yonr standard up, find preserve your unoccupied lands for those #howilI make intelligent use of them." The city council is to be commended for its desire to have the trees systematically' planted about the city. Nothing will improve the appearance of Lethbridge and increase the value of property more : than streets lined with beAutifal shade trees. Lethbridge need not worry about the O. P. R.'s intentions any longer. Tha fact that contracts have been let for roundhouse and freight sheds showis that the big road is going to start in at once to build up Lethbridge. If you want to be happy contented, don't knock. and Almost enough rain has fallen in Southern Alberta within the last six weeks to float a warship. The police had better use the "move on" summons with the young men who loaf about Hound St. Saturday evenings. The prbjiosal to place seats In the square is all right. Get a lot of them, so that there will be lots of accomodation for citizens. Get behind that flour mill schema and pmd) it for all yon are worth. Lethbridge must have a mill right away. Thirteen isn't an unlucky number in Cranbrook. Ask the lacrosse boys if it is. GOSSIP By the ontheside Tattler Judging from the comments of the members ef the" partyj the lady journalists enjoyed the *,rip to Sunny Southern Alberta better than any other part of the west. Now, ladies never tell falsehoods, as we all know, sd when they de. clared with delight as they left Lethbridge on Saturday night "This has been the best day of all" we must.and gladly do believe them. liOt everybody join boost for Lethbridige. hands and The Oddfellows have' selected' a good fellow as thei r grand master inB.C . Cardston is reaching the brick and stone age of its history. New buildings of these materials have been erected recently and more are under construction. Cardston is a nice little town with as hospitable a lot of people as can be found on the continent. The Municipal World, the lead-ing municipal paper of Ontario, says:-^No one wants to pay a higher tax bill than is necessary, but on the other hand the municipality witk a low rate is rarely a desirable place to live in. The meaning of a low rate is usually bad roads, poorly kept streets and an inferior characrer of public service. By means of municipal organization, modem improvements, or rather, modem necessities, can be procured, in a general way, for less than the individual working alone can obtain it. It is means of economy in securing �ewerage, water supply, fire protection and other common necessities. It is not the business of councillors to starve any of these services in order to reduce taxes, but rather to see that the people obtain the best value for the available expenditure upon them. There must beielBcienoy as well as economy in municipal work. My, the local ladies did enjoy the Chinook Club last Saturday evening. It was the first many of them had seen of the interior/tif that beautiful building and the topic of conversation in the diawing room's on reception day* just now is "Why don't the nen give us a couple of afternoons ai�eeliattheClub." One of the Conservative senators �uggeatat^t the best way to re-fMn the aenate ia, to permit the bpixMittou leader to nake appoint-�Mitelothat body. Yea, that is an eaay way to get CoAiemitiTea into the lenate, biit it ^ ia a Vrazy niiui'a aoheme. We do^ not' want "one man" power in this oountiy. r Feople in the weft wiU aiiplaad �:9^i|ljiC0^^,.f^ntly: , . Now, who are the lady journalists? Well, they are women and gtrls who write-not letters lo their sweethearts or husbands - but articles in the papers. Some of the things they write about are serious, some of .them are not. Many o� these .ladies are more popular at a wedding than at any other time, because it is there they are able to say the homely bride is beautiful, the $2 dress is rich and magnificent and so on. However all the ladies were not society editresses. In the party were women of renown in the literary world, women whose articles are devoured by their aistars who scan the Ladies Home Jonroal and other popular periodicab-^ Probably the best known of the. party, was Mrs. Julia Westover Alden, the heroine of Bret Harte's story, "The Only Girl." Mrs. Alden is a bright, clever woman. She edits the Sunshine department of the L�dles' Home Journal. Then there was "Kit," by all odds the best known women's page editreaa in Canada. "Kit," or Mrs. Coleman, aa she is known out of the newspaper office, directs a pen on the Toronto Mail & Empire. With her was her daughter. Patsy, who has inherited the literary instinct and writes for the Hamilton Herald. Mrs. Frechette, an authoress of considerable reputation, was also along. She is a sister of Wm. Dean Howells, the well known Am^ , Go where? O,^anywhere!' just go. There's mountain top and shaded deU, There's prairie, lake and seaside, well If makes no difference which, just so . You up and pack your grip and go Go where? Oh, anywhere! just go. The best way to atop a wagging tongue is to let it wag until people are tired listening to it. Have a bright bouquet of flowers in each roomof your home to cheer and brighten it and its inmates.' When men buikl a new boat and wish to test its strength they torn its prow up stream againatjhe oar-rent. They do not let it drift with the tide. So it' is with our Uvea. If we wish to try onr strength we must turn our faces to the current and face the tide. . � The life of the world'is strenoua, and the door of the.home' should shut out the storm and stress, but should not shut out now and whole, some and inspiringJnfluence. It should stand wide in hospitable wel come to friends. The home lifk� that is narrow and selfish ia dull and enervating. There is not such a great amount of happiness in the world, even at the best, that we ahould risk losing it by our own misdeeds and ill nature. There are many jpeoplein life ytfio may be likened to a briar bush, when one cornea too; near he getastung 1^thorns; battNichin^ dividual should reinember that he him self is sometimes thoiny and apt to inflict wounda. Therefor. each one should be more lenient toe i ward the other, femembeiring the THE HOME. Married people would be happier, If home trials were never told to the neigh bora. If they kissed and made up after eveiy quarrel. If household expenses were proportioned to receipts. If they tried to be as agreeable as in courtship days. If each would try and be a siip-port and comfort to the other. If each remembered the other was a human being not an augeL If women were as kind to their husbands as they were to their loyen. If fuel and provisions were laid in during the high tide of summer work. If both parties reinembered that they married for worse as well as better. ~ If men Were as thoughtful for their wives as they were for their sweethearto. If there were fewer aitk and veU vet costumes for the street, and more pUiin, tidy house dresses. If there were fewer "please, darlings" in public, and more polite manners in private. If wives and husbands woiild teke souif pleaaure aa they go along, and not degenerate into mere toiling machines. Recreation is necessary to keep the heart in its place, and to get along without it ia a big mistake. If men coidd remember that women can't always be smiling^ who have to cook the ^dinner, an-Bwear.the bell half a dJozen times, get rid of a neighbor who has drop-ped in, tend to a sick haby, tie up the finger of a twb-year>boy, gather nptha playthings of-a four year oU, tie up the, head of a aix year old on skates, and get an.eight year old ready for school, to say nothing of sweeping, cleaning, etc. A women with all of this to contend with may claim it a privilege to look and feel a little tired some-timea, and a word of sympathy irpnld,.noi be toomach.toexpeJDt from the man, who/ duripg^the honeymoon, would't let her carry aa.much ea a sunshade, There is perhaps no place where courage is more needed than in the^ home life by thetired housewife and busy mother.
